, hillary clinton asked about it today and said we knew what we knew at the time and investigating, she ducked the question. >> paul ryan came out among the more memorable lines is there's an act of terror against the united states we're going to call it what it is. this administration is caught in a lot of different explanations, complicated story, and you've got the intelligence community, state department and the white house. we cover washington. we understand there's a lot of competing voices when it comes to that. the buck stops at the white house with the president on these matters. and this was an act of terror as he says and there are a lot of different explanations. heated testimony about the fact that there were additional security requests. again this is just messy. i don't think -- look, martha raddtz asked direct questions i believe in moderators asking direct questions and getting answers. was it an intelligence failure. he didn't answer the question. and she did go back at a later point. this just -- they're just sewing more confusion about this rather than resolving the

, they have had the best three and a half years they have had since clinton was in the white house when they used to say that about him as well. you can't get ammo anymore because dealers get their boxes of ammo in and people rush in and get it because they have signs and salesman are saying this president is going to take away your guns tomorrow. no, next week. but he's going to take them away. so the gun dealers in america are having banner sales every day of the week because tomorrow, next week, next month, next term, he's going to take away your guns. >> but the nra are powerful. they have a lot of money to spend and they are targeting the swing states. will they be effective? >> we don't hear much from the nra until it's election year. then they are advocating for republicans. sometimes you wonder if they shouldn't be called the national republican advocates. >> is president obama going to get rid of the second amendment if he wins a second term on november 6th? >> no. that ain't going to happen. you can count on it. if he was going to do it, he would have done it during the first
. a gallup poll at one point had him ahead of incumbent bush and a man by the name of bill clinton by 14. he left the race and returned in october for the debates and it's the second time that an independent candidate had participated. >> what separates me is that 5 1/2 million people came together on their own and put me on the ballot. i was not put on the ballot by either of the two parties or any pac money, any foreign lobbyist money or interest money. this is a movement that came from the people. >> on election day, nearly 20% of the vote, best showing since the progressives nominated eddie roosevelt 38 years ago. bill clinton won the vote. the same year, ralph nader launched a write-in campaign. nader's best showing was in 2000 when he received 2.9 million votes. gore won the popular vote that year. in florida, nader got over 97,000 votes. i would say that was enough to make up for the 537,000 gap that made up the race for george w. bush. some people called him a spoiler but nader hated the term. he blasted "the wall street journal," believe it or not, for using such a political bigoted
alternate cavalry leader, bill clinton. i was young enough to remember have been using the term the alternate cavalry leader, bill clinton. i was young enough to remember what it was like when ike came into the campaign for nixon and almost won it for nixon. ike was still the guy who won defend freedom. that's what the ads say. but then there's paul ryan, the republican vice presidential equal pay for equal work for women so no girl in america will ever grow up thinking her time, the fourth of july" where everybody cheers him when he goes off to fight but when he comes back dismembered, there's not a lot of bugles playing. not a lot of bugles playing.\ they're good at the beginning but not so good when we meet the casualties. >> i think people rally around brave young men and women -- >> i wish they would. >> before i became a senate candidate, i was vice president of department of defense policy board. presidential debate on thursday night. joe biden has the opportunity to tell the truth. what mitt romney will do to the middle class in this country. good debate by joe biden com
your bottle." paul ryan had a lot toe drink last night. water, water. events right now. bill clinton coming off a big week on the campaign trail in las vegas, arizona and california is in indianapolis right now at a grassroots event. he is scheduled to come out any minute now. among others, he is supporting congressman joe donnelley who is running for senate. we are also waiting for hillary clinton. she is having a press availability with the italian foreign minister and might address the situation in libya that got so heated in the debate last night. we are keeping our eye on that, as well. >>> we do have that big showdown for you. two california congressmen or california congressman howard berman and brad sherman last night. >> security guard had to step in there. in a shamt, congressman sherman said the pierce college debate was not conducted at the highest level. i regret my part in allowing emotions to distract from the exchange of views. we are still waiting for a response from congressman berman, but back to last night's debate where we have to bring you some of the real momen
performance last night for barack obama. >> hillary clinton is running as the tough fighter, and if obama doesn't show democrats he can be a tough fighter against the republican attack machine so called but in fact it is, then, you know, democrats are going to pull back from him. >> subpar performance in the debate by senator obama and a great performance by senator clinton. >> i think they saw john mccain is the tough guy and barack obama is the cerebral guy. >> he seemed to lose control. >> john mccain clearly won this battle on points. >> so this is it every time. i actually thought that he was during the primary a subpar debater. in fact, debate after debate in which he wouldn't throw the punch and this was the big -- >> right. i think part of the issue is romney has been making so many big mistakes and has been so underperforming. a lot of us forgot he can stay say coherent things and can be good at debates and thought that president obama's campaign has been on. >> but this is where the kind of film clips that you have can be very useful because we can have pictures of romney saying
difference between he and hillary clinton. they must have had 40 debates in which all they talked about the individual mandate. he got in and chose the individual mandate because that's what the world of center left wonk ri had established as the framework for health care. for me the reason the biden moment when he looks in the camera and says trust. the specifics are going to matter much less than who is em poe jurd when it comes time to actually govern. who's empowered in the house republican caucus who's calling the shots. who's empowered in mitch mcconnell and who's empowered in the world on conservative wonke wonkery. it is which political coalition you trust than what numbers are showing up. >> ryan was speaking to a constituency that doesn't really exist. the people who are never going to grow old, never going to be vulnerable. it's what mitt romney was saying. if you're over 55, don't listen. >> stop listening, yeah. >> and ryan was saying, for the old people who we've already made a contract with, that old contract is in place, but we've got a new one for people who are never g
to reward the loyalty. you're right, we said in the run up to 2008 that hillary clinton was the most dominant front-runner in politics. that had nothing on what we should be if she decided to run in 2016. >> can i just -- no. i got to tell you. you know, i know she's enormously popular right now but it's because she's not running. i mean, it's not that hard to be that popular. >> but a lot of democrats are saying, wait a minute, she literally got shafted in 2008. this is not fair. this is her turn and thus -- look, this is -- >> they're saying, she's been a loyal soldier for the last eight years, quote-unquote. she has to run. >> i said it in '08. i'll say it in '16. it is not a place for loyalty or for mrs. clinton. it is an indication about one's own ability. i think she's fantastic. i really do. i also think that american voters don't particularly like older women. we won't even buy like makeup from older women. i think even as i was talking about joe biden being 70, hillary clinton as an aging woman becomes less and less appealing to american voters. not in the way that -- just i
by former president bill clinton, another boss so to speak, at an event in ohio. it will be free to the public. >>> well, the gop ticket is busy crisscrossing the crucial battle ground state of ohio again today. moments ago vice-president nomin nominee paul ryan wrapped up a campaign stop in youngstown. >> reporter: a good saturday to you, alex witt, from the battle ground state of ohio which has become in large part a home away from home for both the obama and the romney campaigns. they're spending a lot of time here, a lot of money here because of the role that ohio may ultimately play and who wins this election come november 6. last night mitt romney and paul ryan played to a large crowd in lancaster, ohio. there was a lot of enthusiasm, a lot of excitement in the air. and in large part because they believe the republicans believe they've won these first two debates. governor mitt romney had a pretty strong performance out in denver ten days ago. paul ryan had a pretty solid performance two nights ago down in kentucky. but that excitement and energy notwithstanding there's a l
times was the one that was held in richmond with george bush, bill clinton, and the campaign manager. because clinton knocked that one out of the park because he connected to questions being asked by people in the room. those are not debates where you come with prepared answers, and you deliver them irrespective of what you're asked. >> and can i just ask you, the word "connecting," heretofor, it has been that romney had trouble connecting, so do you expect the president to do better here? >> i do, but the richmond debate is very telling. because something else that happened in that debate, george h.w. bush, he looked at his watch. so they may want to take the watch away from him before the debate. so he needs to do what he can do pretty well in front of audiences, which is really connect with average voters. and mitt romney has had more challenges in that department. >> and here is something you have seen before, larry, just a couple of months before, the national geographic is going to air a clip. >> tonight, we know why we are here. >> tonight, we fight for something truly greater
the sort of bill clinton explanation of digging out of this hole, has been that ultimately the last sliver of swing voters is going to say okay, let's not change horses in mid stream. they're making a classic incumbent case of saying it's not great, but, hey, do you want to start over? and i go back, i remember watching a couple of focus groups, there was one out in nevada with working women and one woman said i'm not happy with obama. i'm not happy with the economy. but god, i don't want to have to start over. there's this perception. so that to me is a tricky thing for romney. right romney has got to sort of make the case that we're not going to rip everything out by the roots. which is of course what some in this space do want to have happen. but i'm going to create a better recovery. a faster recovery. so i think that's what the 8% means, right? it means he's got to be more nuanced in that argument. where the president can sit there and make the same case -- do you really want to start over? >> there's another point that for the wealthy, life has been pretty good over the last several
